The Free Press Journal reported that the attack took place on Monday (16 January 2023). Khalistan supporters had earlier attacked the BAPS Swaminarayan Temple in Melbourne's northern suburb of Mill Park.
 
 
The incident took place when the devotees reached the temple for 'darshan' and to celebrate the three-day 'Thai Pongal' festival. The majority of Hindus celebrate the 'Thai Pongal festival' in the region every year.
